A child's death is considered an unnatural event. It is a cataclysmic experience with the potential for disrupting the entire family system. A child's death is not only the loss of a person, but a loss of hopes, dreams, identities, and relationships. Yet, little is known about the impact of this event on the family and the family system. In addition, there are few evidence-based recommendations regarding support of the family before the child’s death occurs. A phenomenological study was conducted to determine the lived experience of families who had lost a child to perinatal, anticipated or sudden, unanticipated death. Questions were specifically posed to elicit the meaning of the experience and what interactions with health care providers or others were helpful or not. Using critical case criteria, a purposive sample of nine parent couples who had lost a child to death in the previous year were invited to participate in a focus group. The focus groups were audiotaped and verbatim transcripts made. Thematic analysis is ongoing and will be confirmed by member checks. Further analysis of group similarities and differences will be conducted.
